6:32 pm
>> going to be an amazing court trial. >> reporter: it's going to be a play. it's going to play out. >> great stuff. allen, thank you. los angeles police officer is lucky to be alive after a gunman walked into a station last night and shot him. the officer didn't have on a bulletproof vest. one of the bullets hit his backup gun. that gun was in his front pants pocket and might have saved his life. he survived the shootout and is said to be in good condition. he managed to shoot the suspect with another officer while wounded. >> they responded courageously. they did what we expect them to do. but it's more than expectations. it's a hope because courage under fire is difficult. >> police recovered a massive stash of weapons and ammo from the gunman's apartment. the suspect is hospitalized in critical condition. it's been a month now since that malaysia airlines flight disappeared. crews are searching the southern indian ocean as you

6:52 pm
at&t baseball. they returned today looking like the 1927 new york yankees. the 5-year-old miles scott batkid threw out the first pitch after his save the city tour around the city. belt's fifth homer of the season gave the giants a 2-0 lead early. more offense in the third. michael morse past the diving hill, two runs score to give the giants a 5-1 lead. 7 runs batted in for morse this season. another two at it for the giants later in the fifth. brandon crawford spoke through the hole two more runs score to give the giants a 7-2 lead. and that was plenty. for tim hudson, struck out 4 in 8 innings he allowed just two earned runs scattering 7 hits and got a standing ovation coming off the mound. the giants win 7-3 and they are 6-2 to start the season. >> reporter: it had the feel of

6:54 pm
know, a lot of injuries. a lot of downs. and you know, for most of us, you know, it was a learning experience. >> reporter: yeah, sure, the giants still have 154 games to go. but if the first eight are any indication, the 2014 giants are more about hitting and less about pitching. >> i'll take these first two starts. it's been a fun outing out there, guys have really played some good baseball behind me. and uhm, you know, it's fun. hopefully it's getting better from here. >> reporter: hudson 2-0 to begin the season and bruce bochy did point out it's early. these are not the '27 yankees. they are only a week into the season. i tweeted had the giants had this kind of offense during tim lincecum's dominant year he would have three 21 seasons. let's see how the giants offense holds out over the longer period of the campaign. basketball, the uconn huskies are the second lowest seed ever to win the national championship. but just don't call them the c word. >> you know, somebody told me
6:55 pm
we was cinderellas. i was like no, we uconn. this is what we do. >> reporter: kevin ali is right. u-conn's second title since 2011 but pretty remarkable considering they were banned from the post-season play last year. napier made sure everyone knew the huskies were above that match on national tv last night. >> ladies and gentlemen, you're looking at the hungry huskies. this is what happens -- [ screaming ] >> it's funny. i was laying down thinking of what to say. if i was on that podium i was going to say that. i'm so happy that i was in that position. >> reporter: who got this tattoo? remember the kentucky fan who got the tattoo before the tournament started? he is going to keep it. tyler austin got the ink predicting the wildcats would
6:56 pm
win the title. obviously they did not. he is going to keep the tattoo. for the first time since 1994 tiger woods not playing in the masters. woods is not going to be there. and by the fall, phil mickelson becomes the favorite in the augusta galleries with 10 years ago phil won his first of three masters with a putt on the 18th hole. the home thing not so great about that moment was his leap after the ball went into the hole. >> i jumped so high i almost hit lightning that day! [ laughter ] >> and unfortunately, the photographers, you know, they just didn't time it right. and so it's very -- [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> i felt like it was an unfair assessment of that leap because i probably dunked a basketball. >> reporter: phil mickelson i think is becoming everybody's pick or the majority -- the favorite to win this year's masters. it appears to be a wide-open
6:57 pm
